Process Simulation & Optimisation
Our key difference is that we can bring together our expertise in process simulation and our extensive real-world process engineering experience to help you overcome your most difficult processing challenges. Flex Process use many different modelling and simulation techniques to support our clients, depending on your needs we can perform steady state or dynamic modelling, dispersion modelling, CFD or FEA etc. Flex Process is a leader in the field of dynamic process simulation and this technique often provides a cost-effective approach to solving our clients’ problems.
Flex Process apply advanced modelling techniques to troubleshoot your plant, reverse engineer its current design, optimise plant operating conditions, improve efficiency and yields, ensure safe operation, and reduce your CAPEX, OPEX, energy costs, and emissions. We can help you optimise and modify your process, and help you develop and test new operating procedures in a real-time simulation.
There are numerous plants operating worldwide where no one truly understands the process. Perhaps there’s been too many modifications or feed changes over the years to trust the original mass balance, or perhaps the paperwork has been lost or degraded in storage or key personnel have left. Our simulation tools can make sure you understand your process fully, with a full up to date mass and energy balance, and dynamic models that replicate real operating conditions. We can help you solve difficult and complex process issues and understand your plant better, including using our simulation for training.
Our experience shows that most plants, even new ones can improve their efficiency by 5 or relatively easily, using this technology. Surprisingly, new builds recently delivered by EPCs are especially lucrative for this, since the EPC focus was on getting the plant built on time and on budget, and optimising the overall process was often not done.
